Coláiste Muire School Choir

Coláiste Muire choir at Cork Choral Festival

Coláiste Choir & Orchestra
There was a large crowd in the Danlann Colaiste Muire for the annual Open  Night procedings.  I always enjoy this occasion with the sense of  excitement and optimism  palpable  amongst  the potential new recruits. With my daughter in her last year, opportunities to hear the award winning choir are diminishing.
 The choir and orchestra under conductors Carmel Griffin and Michael Hennessy  sang  Vive La Viva by Coldplay,  a modern Benedictus (Karl Jenkins ?)  and Rolling in the Deep by Adele.

As far as I am aware Colaiste Muire is one of the few schools in the region  which has choir practice timetabled for every incoming first year thus ensuring every student has a musical education. You can hear an interview with  dedicated director Carmel Griffin below.
